Abstract : Back pain is the leading cause of disability worldwide. Treatment options may be conservative or surgical and instrumentation with pedicle screws is the commonest method of stabilizing the spine. Correctly placing the pedicle screws is of paramount importance and the morphological characters may vary by region. This study aims to do a morphometric analysis of lumbar pedicles in Tamil Nadu population using CT of lumbar spine. 300 men and women aged 18-65 were studied with a single lumbar spine CT. The measured parameters were Pedicle isthmus diameter, Depth to the anterior cortex along the axis of the pedicle, Depth to the anterior cortex along the Midline of the vertebra, Pedicle offset from the spinous process, Transverse Pedicle Angle and Pedicle angulation compared to the vertebral body. The mean age of the subjects was 38.83±10.99 years, the mean height was 161.9 ±9 .93 cm and the mean weight was 59.94±11.32 Kg. Depth to the anterior cortex along the axis of the pedicle progressively increased from L1 to L3 and decreased in L4 and L5. Pedicle Isthmus diameter increased gradually from L1 to L5. The pedicle offset steadily increases from L1 to L5 vertebra. The SPA gradually increased from L1 to L2 then progressive decreased with caudal angulation at L5. The Transverse pedicle angulation increased from L1 to L5. The spine parameters of our population differ significantly from the previously described studies. Computed Tomography helps in understanding the morphology of the pedicles and decreases iatrogenic complications..

Abstract : Diabetes Mellitus and Alzheimer’s disease are the most important challenges in public health. Long term suffering of type-2 diabetes brings the possible risk of Alzheimer disease for the patient. The features of both diseases are characterized through the cause of inflammation as well as insulin impairment. Insulin degrading enzyme, Matrix metalloproteinase-9 acts as one of the therapeutic targets for both the disease. GSK-3 plays a central role in an insulin signalling pathway that also helps in the therapeutic intervention of Diabetes Mellitus and Alzheimer disease. Understanding common underlying molecular mechanisms in Diabetes Mellitus and Alzheimer's disease could be very useful in terms of predicting patient outcome and also in terms of identifying therapeutic targets for both the diseases..

Abstract : Apert syndrome is an autosomal dominant syndrome with a combination of craniosynostosis, syndactyly and midfacial hypoplasia. The incidence is about 15 in 1,000,000 live births. It may present a number of challenges to the anaesthesiologist such as a difficult airway, difficult IV access, airway hyper-reactivity, temperature dysregulation, high blood loss and venous air embolism. Difficult intubation and ventilation may be observed because of abnormal airways. We report a successful endotracheal intubation with use of video laryngoscope to improve visualization of the airway and fibre optic bronchoscope as a stylet for endotracheal tube at the age of 8 months and endotracheal intubation for the same patient for syndactyly release surgery at the age of 5 years..

Abstract : Intra-operative neurophysiological monitoring is a well-established, safe and sensitive tool for detecting intra-operative injuries during neurosurgeries. Motor evoked potentials (MEP) and somatosensory evoked potentials (SSEP) are monitored throughout the procedure and any significant change from baseline is noted as this may indicate a compromise of the monitored pathway. Anaesthesia especially inhaled agents and muscle relaxants are confounders for motor evoked potential (MEP) monitoring as they have deleterious effects on the amplitude of the waveform signal. Total intravenous anaesthesia with no intraoperative muscle relaxants following intubation has been suggested as the preferred anaesthetic technique for these surgeries. TIVA is an effective means of providing anaesthesia for patients requiring intra-operative neurophysiological monitoring..

Abstract : Osteoarthritis of the knee is a common chronic disorder having a significant morbidity. Etiopathogenesis of OA is multifactorial. Muscle imbalance is one of the causes of OA knee. Quadriceps muscle weakness is one of the significant predictors is progress of OA. Hence quadriceps muscle strengthening is one of the strongly recommended treatment modalities. Studies have shown that VMO is more selectively affected among the quadriceps muscles. This study is conducted to assess the effect of addition of VMO specific strengthening exercises to quadriceps exercises in the treatment of KL Grade I- III OA knee. 60 subjects with primary OA were randomized into two groups VMO + Quads and VMO alone. Allocation concealment and blinding was done. Subjects were taught exercises daily for one week, and weekly for the next 3 weeks. VAS and WOMAC scores were recorded at the baseline and at 1,3,6 and 12 months. Both groups were comparable at the baseline. Both groups showed a significant improvement in VAS and WOMAC scores at 1 year follow -up compared to the baseline. When inter group comparisons were made, there was no difference in pain scores in any of the follow up. However VMO + quads group showed a significant improvement in WOMAC scores at 1 and 3 months follow up which evened out at the 6 and 12 months follow up. Quadriceps exercises and the addition of VMO exercises to the quads group showed significant improvement in pain and functional outcomes in OA knee. The addition of VMO also shows a significant improvement in functional outcomes at 1 and 3 months of follow up..
